Apparently, the only way to see our gutless Congresswoman without being pre-screened is to bring your checkbook.

We all know how much of a cowardly disgrace our local congresscritter has morphed into. Actually, this writer knew she'd be a total disaster as far back as 07, when Cathy McMorris parachuted her absentee behind in here to, well, run for Congress, her prior 11 year absence notwithstanding.

Part of the problem is her lack of intelligence. Part of it is her narcissism. Part of it is her lack of vision and the fact that most of the time, her keepers keep their foot firmly stepping on her neck.

But most of her problem is her cowardice.

It's a cowardice on display in every conceivable way, but primarily, her ongoing failure to summon up the courage to face her constituents.

Her latest effort?

U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler said Tuesday she's happy with the smaller settings of her invitation-only "community coffees" and isn't planning to hold another large-scale town hall.

About 60 people attended her latest gathering at Judy's Restaurant in Longview on Tuesday morning, a fraction of the attendance at earlier town halls in her Southwest Washington district.

To Herrera Beutler, a Camas Republican in her first term, it's about maintaining the quality of discussion with constituents without the influence of outside interests.

"I get to hear what real people are thinking, not people who organize from Portland or Seattle," Herrera Beutler said.

However, some constituents said Herrera Beutler should make herself more available, even if she's exposed to tough questions. Some complained that they only learned about Tuesday's event from others who received invitations, which undoubtedly reduced the number of people participating.

"Fifty to 60 people out of 30,000 in Longview-Kelso is nothing," retiree Bill Kasch of Longview said.

More, of course, if you can stomach it.

Her cowardice is now, of course, sunk in concrete:

And this woman has been tasked to have an impact in the destiny of this Nation?

There is absolutely no excuse for this kind of controlled access, save one: fear.

Her handlers are afraid that Ridgefield Barbie, when forced to answer questions, will engage in the same kind of idiocy she resorted to when she lied to the Commissioners during her confirmation process for the legislature:

"Every step I have taken since high school has been preparing me for this," she said at Thursday's hearing, her voice cracking slightly. "There is not a job in the world I would rather have."

So, just over two years later, her imagination having sufficiently expanded to encapsulate the reason she was sent here in the first place, the only job she would rather have obviously did not include remaining in the Washington State House of Representatives.

Apparently, Congress was a job she would rather have. Apparently, when she was blubbering through her act to get the commissioner's votes (which were already in the bag, thanks to Marc Boldt) she was lying.

Tim "The Liar" Leave-it slapped her around like a rented step-child. Instead of kicking him in his miniature testicles, she just disappeared. Great message THAT sends, eh, Babs?

And, she's afraid of us. She doesn't want to hear from us.

Unless, of course, you bring your checkbook. That, apparently, is the only "invitation" you have to show to get in:
